Last October, I took wedding pictures at this amazing venue down in Cobden, Illinois. It was an old B&B that had an amazing old barn that was used for events. Ever since that day, I have wanted something similar in this local area I shoot in. Well my friends, Tim and Rachel took me to a new place for their engagement pictures and I cannot wait to tell you all about it and their amazing session.
Rachel wanted a very outdoorsy feel to her pictures with the fall colors. So we started off on some property down from her grandparents. It was amazing, yes, but when she said we were going to this vineyard over by Red Bud I was a little thrown. I was trying to think of a vineyard by Red Bud LOL. Rachel had gotten permission to come shoot on the property of The Pour Vineyard. It’s located in the small town of Prairie, Illinois and there this huge old barn that has been renovated for events. We met one of the owners of the property too and she was so sweet. We walked all over the property and Tim kept saying how perfect that spot was for Rachel.
Tim is kind of quiet and I have to be honest when I say that I was a tad bit nervous for this session. He, like most grooms-to-be, didn’t seemed to thrilled to be getting his picture taken. But it didn’t take long for him to really get into it and have some fun. I think after seeing the barn he got a little more excited because he saw how much Rachel loved the place. I really do think the whole day turned out beautiful and we got the most amazing photographs.
If you are a bride and you’re wanting a rustic themed wedding location, contact The Pour Vineyard. It could very well be the location for your big day.
Look at this place! This is the barn I was telling you about!
Rachel and Tim, you two are just adorable! Period.
Love these black and whites too!
Definitely a favorite!
